It’s National Hot Chocolate Day and time to treat yourself to the most creamiest and yummiest chocolate drink ever. Hot Chocolate drinks have been around for 3,000 years. The beverage became popular in Europe and is now a staple in almost every household.
Contrary to belief, Hot Chocolate actually has many health benefits, in fact until the 19th century it was used to treat illnesses such as liver and stomach diseases. Also cocoa contains large amounts of antioxidants that may help prevent cancer, plus cocoa bean helps with digestion.
If you fancy celebrating this choco-licious day then pop down to the Southbank where British beverages brand, Beltane&Pop have launched a pop-up truck with lots of hot chocolate delights.
Each drink is created from single origin hot chocolate to give you that truly intense cacao hit. You have the choice of eight luxurious chocolates ranging in strengths and an impeccable selection of toppings such as Gourmet Marshmallow or Piedmont Hazelnuts. No self respecting Hot Chocolate drink is complete without a lovely liqueur and you can choose between Black Cherry, Amaretto, Ginger or Irish Cream.
You can find the Beltane&Pop Truck at the Southbank Centre until April.
